haul - what i bought on holiday


I didn't think I would be able to shop much when I was on holiday but we quite often got the bus into the town of Ciutadella and there were so many nice shops with little bits and pieces in and they tempted me to buy far too much as usual.

Red jumper and army green t-shirt - these are from a shop called Fridays Project, the type of clothing in the shop reminded me of h&m a little bit, there weren't many things I liked in the shop as they were a bit basic but these I immediately loved. The jumper isn't like the jumpers I have already, its a really soft material and its not at all itchy which is a deal breaker for me. It is nice and thin so its not too bulky. The t-shirt is basic but the army green colour is very 'in' for autumn, I love the shoulder detail, it makes it a bit different to just a plain t-shirt.

Blue shirt - this is from the shop Stradivarius, my new favourite shop, it was so perfect, I could have bought everything in there! I was only allowed 5 minutes in the shop so I couldn't go too crazy and buy everything in sight but I saw this shirt and loved the collar detail on it. I later on went on the internet to their website and put so much in the online basket (of course not buying it) including an amazing leather jacket with studs on the collar, but good news for my purse they don't ship to the UK. Although I do believe they are opening a couple of shops in England in the near future!

Abarcas (sandals) - these are traditional Menorcan shoes originally worn by peasants and have now become the fashion in Menorca. At first I thought they were really ugly but when I seen basically everyone wearing them they grew on me and I now think they're really cool. So I got my self a pair. I went for a basic tan colour so they would match almost every outfit I would wear. They come in so many different colours, and have loads of different patterns on them, like lizards and flowers, I had to limit my self to just one pair. They are so comfy and easy to walk in, they are real leather so they will last a long time hopefully!

Bag - this is from another amazing shop called Pachamama, I think this is my favourite shop out of all the ones I went into. It was jam packed with jewellery and little indian and hindu inspired items. There was so much to look at, every time I went back I was finding something new. I've wanted a bag similar to this one for such a long time and as soon as I saw this one I knew it was the one, there were various colours and designs but this one stud out the most to me. It is a little bit long for me as I'm only short but hopefully I can find a way to shorten it somehow. It reminds me of something I seen Miley wear so that convinced me even more to buy it.

Now I'm not going to explain everything I have jewellery and souvenir wise but I will tell you about a couple of my favourites. If you can spot that gold bracelet that has a triangle shaped chain coming off it, is from Pachamama too, its absolutely spectacular its so different to any other hand chain I have ever seen its not really that comfortable to wear but I think its worth it as it looks so good. I got quite a few friendship type bracelets as I always do on holiday, from a few markets. I got a dream catcher key ring which I'm thinking can go on my future car keys (hint hint dad). That purple piece of ribbon says 'gent de menorca' and you have to wrap it twice around your wrist and tie it in three knots and make three wishes, and when it falls off your wishes will come true, which I thought was so cute. I of course couldn't go any where with out buying make up so I bought a blusher from Lola in the colour number 2 and Stila correcting face primer. Thats pretty much all I can talk about so I hope you liked seeing what I got and keep an eye out for my outfits from week 2, talk to you all soon!

menorca


I just got back from my two week holiday with my family on Friday, it was lovely to have some sun and heat though in Menorca they were having a heat wave so most days it was 40°c+ which was quite unbearable! It was a very relaxing holiday as we stayed in a villa and didn't really do much at all except for a couple of times got the bus into the town of Ciutadella. I was on edge quite a lot though through the two weeks because there wasn't any wifi connection at the villa, and I ended up giving into temptation and turning my 3G on so my phone bill will hurt this month! At the end of week two I was getting a little bit aggravated and wanted to come home which is unusual for me as I usually hate coming back to rainy England, but this time I was missing my bunnies and my memory foam mattress!

palm tree sunset - nail art tutorial

*I am currently on holiday in Menorca and don't have internet access, I will not be able to reply to emails and comments until I get back on the 24th of August*


you'll need - black nail art pen, make up sponge, base coat, models own beach party and hedonist, top coat.


001. Paint all of your nails a bright orange, except for your ring finger.
002. Paint a strip of bright pink and a strip of bright orange onto a make up sponge.
003. Dab the sponge onto your ring finger to create a gradient effect, repeat this step until the colour is opaque.
004. Paint a layer of top coat over your ring finger to blend the gradient more and get rid of the textured sponge markings. Dip a q-tip into nail varnish remover to get rid of the polish on the bed of your nails.
005. With a black nail art pen paint a diagonal line from the middle of the orange on your ring finger and stopping in the middle of your nail.
006. Fill the corner in black.
007. Paint a line coming from the middle of the diagonal line you just painted, to almost the top of your nail. Make sure to make the bottom of the line thicker than the top to make it look more realistic.
008. Paint 5 or 6 small lines coming from the top of the palm tree base, odd numbers of lines usually look best. Again make the line where it comes from the base thicker than the tip of it.
009. Cover all of your nails with a thick coat of shine enhancing top coat to protect your design from chipping.

travel outfit

t-shirt - topshop (very old)
jacket - topshop
disco pants - river island
bag - michael kors

I am going on holiday this morning, to Menorca for two weeks, so I might not have the chance to post anything with in the next two weeks as our villa doesn't have WIFI (arghhh!!!). I was planning on scheduling some posts for when I am away but things got on top of me and now when I've came to do it my internet is running at snails pace! I think I'm going to bring my laptop with me so hopefully if there are any places with free WIFI I will hop on my laptop and try and post something for you all. If I don't manage to post, just know where I am and that I haven't abandoned you all again! This is my outfit I am wearing to travel on the plane, I know when I get to Menorca I'm going to be boiling but I will just have to suffer for a little bit! I'm so pleased with my pants, they are from River Island and they're basically the AA disco pant dupes! They were only £30 and compared to the AA ones they are a steal! I have to be going now, hopefully I will speak to you soon if not, see you on the 24th of august!

july favourites


batiste cherry dry shampoo, pink grape fruit scrub, sleek - storm pallet, models own - beach party, dkny be delicious red apple, maybelline - the falsies flared, top shop frilly socks

Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo - This brand of dry shampoo is my all time favourite and the cherry sent is perfect for summer, I use it some times even if my hair isn't needing any dry shampoo, just for the cherry smell, its the realist smelling cherry sent I've tried of any beauty product. I don't know why the scent is such a big issue for me, but it does go along nicely with the perfectness of this dry shampoo

Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub - This has helped clear up my skin so well, I only have a few spots and a little bit of discolouration, but when ever I use this it makes my skin feel so nice and refreshed, and it gets rid of pretty much any mark!

Sleek Storm Eye Shadow Pallet - I rediscovered this eye shadow pallet in the month of July and its such a good quality pallet with so many different colours, and they all work together, it doesn't matter what colours you choose to wear they all will match and blend in really nicely.

Models Own Beach Party - This little bottle of heaven is my absolute all time summer favourite nail varnish, I've been wearing all last month, and I probably will end up wearing only this on holiday.

DKNY Be Delicious Red Apple Perfume - This is a great scent for summer its so fruity and refreshing, it matches perfectly with the cherry dry shampoo.

Maybelline The Falsies Flared - If you want loads of volume, get this mascara. It separates your lashes so well and really does make you look like you're wearing false lashes, it would work better with longer eye lashes than it does on me but it still is my favourite mascara.

Top Shop Frilly Socks - I have been wearing these all the time with every type of shoe, they're so pretty and different to normal socks, I have almost every colour now I just need black!

As some of you may know since its all I've been talking about on twitter is that it was my birthday on the 1st of August. I turned 18, which is sad for me because I don't want to grow up. It feels no different being 18 than being 17 and I much prefer the number 17. Apart from my not wanting to grow up, I had a great birthday I got spoilt rotten! My parents, brother and I went for breakfast on the morning of my birthday then we went out for a meal with the rest of our family, it was really nice to see everyone and the food was amazing, I was so full I could barely move afterwards. I wore a dress from Glamorous and my leather jacket, because it was raining on the day of my birthday! I couldn't believe it was raining, I don't think it has ever rained on my birthday, and on my 18th it did, typical! Above are a few photos from my birthday, I hope you enjoy, sorry if you've already seen them on instagram!
